newbi from Scotland, just picked up a white 335d m sport. great car I love it.

Been into beemers for a few years to the point where I set up and run a local bmw forum abz bmw.

I've had an e30 325is, e36 328, e46 M3, 528 msport and the current diesel beast.

I am going to get it mapped asap to get the most from it but apart from that just a wee splash of carbon here and there.

Hi All,

It's been 6 Years since my last BMW, Purchased myself a 07 335d last weekend and am loving it. It's currently in the garage having the wheels refurb'd as they were in a state. Will post up some pic's when I get it back.

Is there anything I need to look out for on the car? its done 66k full BMWSH.

Hi been lurking for a while, I have an Alpina D3, been using this site for help and advice and thought it was about time I posted something.

Will add pics later as I have a winter restoration going on with it to get it back to my standard of cars.

Previously had an E46, 320D M Sport and previously a couple E36's so love my BM's.

HI ALL NEWBIE E92 OWNER WITH 325i

Hi all, Kudos to you ll for a great website/Group

I have a 56 reg 325i pre lci 92 bmw

previously had a bmw e46 m3 smg II

I have had the car for approx 1 week and have already done the following mods to the car and i have a list already of things i want to do....

- replaced bonnet and boot badges for genuine carbon items
- replaced steering wheel badge for genuine carbon item
- 3M 4D Carbon vinyl wrapped dash/centre console/steering wheel and door trims


THIS IS THE LIST OF TO DO'S...........

- LEATHER M-SPORT INTERIOR WITH HEATED SEATS
- REPLACEMENT BOOTLID - EVO STYLE FROM M-STLYE
- 19" OR 20" ALLOY WHEEL UPGRADE
- REPLACEMENT BONNET WITH POWER DOME AND VENTS - M-STYLE
- REPLACE FRONT BUMPER WITH M-SPORT ITEM
- REPLACE SIDESKIRTS WITH M3 STYLE ITEMS
- REPLACE REAR BUMPER FOR M-SPORT DUAL EXIT ITEM
- FIND A REPLACEMENT REAR SILENCER TO CONVERT TO A QUAD SYSTEM
- REPLACE SUPSENSION WITH COILOVERS

ALSO I HAVE TO MAKE A CHOICE BETWEEN A RETROFIT NAV INSTALL OR BUY AN AFTERMARKET 7" HD SCREEN WITH NAV,BLUETOOTH,DVD ETC - ONE REQUIRES A DASH CHANGE AND LOADS OF LABOUR AND THE OTHER IS PLUG AND PLAY SO NOT SURE WHICH WAY TO GO.

Anyways thats me and my ideas for my e92, Cant wait to get into some discusssions with you all

Been around here for a while since owning a 335i vert, sold that on and changed it for a 370z vert then onto an Audi S5, now i'm back to the fold and just bought an E91 320d M Sport, needed something more economical and slower than the S5 as I would've been destined to lose my licence in that thing!!!

Couple of pics, needs a clean mind!!!




Got a few plans for her, i wrap cars so will probably give her a colour change, still undecided, went to Ultimate Dubs show in Telford at the weekend and got some inspiration from there!! Perhaps a mid / baby gloss blue (sure there is one on here from Switzerland a similar colour). After that will concentrate on a stereo install, the one in it is awful compared to the B&O system in the Audi!!

I hate doing this 'newbie' thing but anyway!
Had my pre-LCI 330I M-Sport Touring now since early January after coming from a reasonably modified mk2 Octavia vRS estate and I've got to say, I'm loving BMW ownership so far! The car I got has a load of options ticked and I'm intending to leave it standard(ish) and enjoy it whilst tidying a few bits and pieces but I suspect even joining this forum is a signal of intent that mods will come along sooner rather than later!

Newbie here, shortly looking for wheels purchasing advice as im dropping from the 20" ACS wheels to something in 19" flavour so i dont have to panic every time i see something that might resemble a pothole! Anyway, heres the car, 335D with some ACS styling parts.



Plans at the moment are new wheels, id like to try and source a CSL style bootlid and maybe some M3 wings to allow for wider wheels up front.

Hello!

Coming from a 2009 VW Scirocco 1.4tsi (160) DSG in black and collecting a 2007 E92 325i M Sport, Automatic (only 40k miles on the clock) in black with black leather interior on Saturday from a BMW Approved Used garage!

I've already ordered the OEM black kidney grills from BMW so will switch those out first and then book it in to get window tints.

My Scirocco could do 0-60mph in 8s and after extensive research I've concluded that the E92 325i in manual form should go 0-60mph just shy of 7s but could not for the life of me find the figure for the auto (i'm assuming around 7.2/7.3?) so if anybody could clear that up it would be much appreciated!

Hello once again and glad to be here!

Hi All,

Top forum, been having a browse around.

New here, just bought an e85 Z4 and I'm on the look out for some 18" Style 162 Alloy's in the classifieds section. I assume this is the place to be!

Cheers

Hi guys looking at getting an E90 335i M Sport once my 130i is sold I'll try and add a pick of the current motor shortly.
Any advice would be good I've seen a couple a 57 Plate and an 09 Face lift although there is 3,500 difference is the extra worth it both normal Auto and similar miles / spec.
